Autumn Vines

These autumn vines remind me so much of Paris. Actually this is right here in Birmingham at my daughter's home.

Dazzling Dahlias III

Today, we again tour Kathy Whitfield's amazing dahlia garden. I have no idea how many varieties they grow but do know that they show at dahlia shows across the SE.

Dazzling Dahlias

I visited Kathy Whitfield's home recently to shoot her fabulous dahlia gardens again. I think I'll share a few this week with you.

I"m putting the finishing touches on my newest phototalk, GARDENS OF BIRMINGHAM, and I will include the "Dahlia Lady" as well as the Adama and Clark homes and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I love to present my phototalks to civic, church and study clubs, as well as garden clubs.

Homework I

I"m currently enjoying an online photography class, Creative Workout, with my friend Meredith Mullins who now lives in Paris. Each week she introduces 1-2 well known photographers and we explore their work. She then sends us off with our cameras to complete a homework assignment with their work as our inspiration.

Week 1 was Robert Frank, who was able to capture the essence of a place while often breaking the rules. We were to do the same. I never realized how hard breaking the rules would be for me. I offer up my image taken at Sam's Super Samwiches. The bottles, smack dab in the middle of the photo is in focus while the others, although out of focus, give the viewer reference.
BTW, the BEST HOT DOGS on the planet!
